LIFE OF THE PARTY is a US comedy in which a woman goes back to college after her husband leaves her.

Sex

Moderate sex references include jokes about penis size, naming one's vagina, sex in public, and discussions about a character's "intimate sexual relationship" with his new girlfriend. In one scene, we see a couple adjusting their clothes after apparently having sex in a library, but no sexual activity actually takes place on screen.

Drugs

A group of women accidentally ingest brownies laced with marijuana. They proceed to act foolishly and vandalise property while intoxicated. The drug misuse is not glamorised or condoned. There is also an additional verbal reference to cocaine.

Language

There are several uses of the word 'bitch', alongside milder terms like 'shit', 'ass' and 'screw'. There is also some rude wordplay during an archaeology lecture, e.g. 'dig-head'.

Violence

A comic fight scene between two women includes a kick to the crotch and a headbutt.

There are numerous party scenes during which characters consume alcohol and play drinking games.
